Lucy was very tender last night and this morning. She needed and demanded a lot of attention. She loved to be petted on her head and chin. She even went close to belly up. I was funally able to get a look at her stiches. Based on what I saw, there were already too many to count and it was only half of the incision. I tried to remove some fur, just the fur, from her belly to see more, but she really did not like that. It looks like that it is still very sensitive.
I talked to the vet today as I am getting concern that Lucy is not using her kitty litter. The vet asked me if she was realeasing herself somewhere else. I just the entire room, no signs of it. The vet told me that it was normal up to now, but it should really happen by tomorrow morning. If not, we will have to bring Lucy to the ER on Sunday, as our vet is working there this weekend. I cross my fingers that Lucy will go to the bathroom. It would be a real trip to bring her there. Not that it is far away, but how would we bring her? In her carrier, yes, but she does not like to go in and I will not be able to carry her in. The vet said that we can just bring her in a towel. Well, we will still have to hold her. She can be "fristee", this little thing.
The vet said by now I should stop the pain killer. I don't think so. If I cannot touch her belly gently, it means that it is still painfull and I will not stop until she is OK. The vet said that it was up to us.
